MedWish Miles

Sat August 19, 2023 Directions


MedWish Miles was created in 2020 to support the countless front-line workers helping during the COVID-19 pandemic. What started as a virtual race came alive (in person) in 2022 and this year marks the second annual in-person experience!

On Saturday, August 19th, we’re inviting you, your family, and your friends into our neighborhood for a 2K walk or 5k run to help us raise awareness and support for the MedWish mission. Whether you’re a seasoned runner/walker or just getting started, you can go the distance for MedWish during this year’s event.
